initially wanted, but who also backed off from was this guy, john brennan. this was john brennan with president obama when president obama first took office. john brennan was reportedly president obama's choice to lead the cia after he first became president in his first term. john brennan had been a career cia figure. he had served as chief of staff to george tenet when george tenet under george bush developed their torture and secret prison program. john brennan's association with the torture and secret prison program of the george bush era of the cia is what sunk his chances for being picked as director of the cia at the start of the obama presidency. it's kind of weird. it's almost a con foreign concept in american modern politics that the left might block something from happening, but it's true. liberals thought obama stopping the torture program wasn't enough. that people tarred by association with that program should not be promoted, that there should be political accountability for people who were close to the torture policy. liberals raised enough noise about john brenna

, like john brennan, which is controversial in some quarters, and john kerry are getting less attention. i would like to comment on the gay rights. i was the only journalist who happened to have written about chuck hagel's views on gay issues years ago because i had conversations with him about my own views that at the time we were still pursuing translators working in intelligence agencies and the defense department and trying to purge them from military service. i had a discussion with him about that and about and don't ask, don't tell. they were attempting to sort out how you would sort through. hagel made clear his support for repealing don't ask, don't tell. i want to be clear that he is saying, and i don't think it is just a move that he has apologized to hormel, and hormel as very graciously accepted his apology, and in addition, senator hagel said he supports lgbt families and the alignment as part of don't ask, don't tell repeal. he also has statements on women's rights and abortion. one of the subjects we do not talk about often is violence against women and in the military, r

from the chuck hagel nomination. other nominations light john brennan, which is controversial in some quarters, but also john kerry are getting lost attention. -- getting less attention. i had conversations with him two years ago about my own views. at the time we are still pursuing -- i had a discussion with hagel about "don't ask, don't tell." it had not been repealed yet. he made very clear his support about the repeal. i did talk to him about this and just want to be clear that he is saying that's it is not just a move that he is apologizing hormell. in addition, he supports lgbt families. he is gone beyond that on women's issues as well. one of the real other subjects we do not often talk about is violence towards women. rates at the academies, rapes in the field. the senate passed an amendment as part of the national defence act giving women who were raped -- i think he is stepping forward. you will hear more about this in the hearings. i think it is important to realize that, like the president, he is a fault on many issues. this is not a move that was triggered by the nominati

with the others down the road. >> reporter: yeah, and john brennan for cia is going to be a lot about benghazi, a lot about the drone program, and a lot of questions that we likely are going to be very interested in hearing in that hearing. martha: absolutely. bret, thank you very much. >> reporter: you got it. martha: see you tonight. bill: i can't remember the last time we saw theresa hines kerry. it's been a longtime. martha: yes it has. bill: you reached out to a number of senators. what did they tell but this hearing and what we can expect? >> reporter: they seem to think that essentially john kerry shares the president's philosophy, and so it's the privilege of the president to get a cabinet team around him essentially that will carry out his wishes, and so they felt like he has plenty of experience, he's obviously one of the veterans on capitol hill, someone who has been here a very longtime. they didn't see anything in his background that necessarily would be a red flag. obviously you ask the questions, you want to know what he sees going forward in terms of leading the state departmen
